ROD Series Grapples

SETTING POLES AND LAYING PIPE HAS NEVER BEEN EASIER

Rotobec’s ROD series of Pipe and Pole Handling Grapples are a safe and efficient alternative for the handling and installation of everything from utility poles to gas pipelines. These time saving specialists are available in several sizes and can handle pipe and pole as small as 7“ all the way up to an incredible 32” in diameter. The high pressure cylinders and standard lock valve will ensure that you maintain a firm grasp, even in the event of a loss of pressure while the replaceable urethane pads prevent any damage from occurring to the surface of the load. When it comes to pipe and pole handling there is simply no better way than with the Rotobec ROD Grapple.
